Can anyone help me out with this one problem please, didn't really learn this type of problem yet.

find a and b such that f is differentiable everywhere

f(x)= ax^3, x=less than or equal to 2

x^2+b, x=greater than 2

thanks

i understand that part that at x=2 the two functions have to be equal. but doesn't that give you more than one answer for example a can be 2 and can be 12? or a can be 1 and b can be 4?
